ENTERPRISE STRUCTURE : IMG > Enterprise Structure > Definition > Financial Accounting
• In “Definition” stage, we define
o Company
o Credit control Area
o Company codes
o Business Area
o Functional Area, and
o Other organizational units.
• DEFINE COMPANY: Define Company, enter address etc.
Use “New Entries” to define a new Company. It is to put in existence a Company with all its
addresses and other details. A Company serves as a Global group under which various
Subsidiaries, Branches & Offices can be configured. A lot of data or SAP implementation
variables can be defined at the Company level and shall be applicable to all the Subsidiaries,
Branches & Offices under this group, eg. Chart of Accounts.
 Note: While saving, a ‘Customizing Request’ Organizer prompts up – This
stores changes made by every individual configuration w.r.t tables changed, date of change
made, etc. It can be used as a tool to troubleshoot the changes & also to put accountability
on configuration makers. Changes made can be viewed via Header > Utilities > Change
Request Organizer (available only inside an IMG screen)
 Note: Any In-house Document (created by any user on the same client) can be
recalled entering ‘*’ in the Reference Field and opting for ‘Tree On’.
 Note: If in run-time, while still in some activity, server goes down connection
is lost, such activity will be locked for editing. To unlock, use SM12 transaction.
• DEFINE / DELETE / CHECK COMPANY CODE :
• Edit company code data [OX02]: Create your co code. DO NOT COPY AT
THIS STAGE.
• IMG/ES/ASSIG/FA: ASSIGN COMPANY CODE TO COMPANY: Assign the
company created under 1 to the company code created under 2.
IMG > Enterprise Structure > Assignment > Financial Accounting
Assign Company Code to Company
All the company codes which were under one group are assigned to the Group. The purpose is to
assign common variables defined at the Company level to the company codes also and for
consolidated reporting purposes.
TO CHECK GLOBAL SETTINGS - [ OBY6 ]

FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
• IMG/FA/GLOBAL SETTINGS/FISCAL YEAR - [ OB29 ]
IMG > Financial Accounting > FA Global Settings > Fiscal Year
Fiscal year variant is maintained at the company code level. SAP has provided various fiscal year
variants, hence only assignment is needed. eg:
K4 Type : JAN –DEC 1 - 12
V3 Type : APR-MAR 1 - 12
All fiscal types come with 12 posting periods (months) and 4 special periods (months) i.e, after
regular entries in 12 normal posting periods, adjustment entries can be passed in following 4
special periods, which though falling in next fiscal period will be reflected in the accounts of
preceding fiscal only.
 Note: In case of fiscal types which are different from calendar year, SAP
adjusts the months that fall in next calendar by “an year shift variable of -1”.
• Maintain Fiscal Year Variant : fiscal year can be
1. Year dependent
2. Year independent
3. Calendar
4. Shortened
• Period : Fiscal year is made up of periods 1 – 12. There can be a maximum of 12
normal posting periods and 4 special 13-16 posting periods. Thus for a General
Ledger there can be a maximum of 16 posting periods, and for a Special Ledger
( where cross flow exists like PCA, PCC etc ) there can be a maximum of 65
posting periods. Once the FYV is defined, periods can be accessed and defined.
Every business transaction is allocated to a posting period. Weekly will have 52
posting periods.
• Day : Last valid calendar date to be specified for each period. FYV 24 PP
Month Day Period Year Shift
1. 1 15 1 +1 for next yr
2. 1 31 2 -1 for last yr
3. 2 14 3 0 for cur yr
4. 2 28 4 periods cannot be maintained for
calendar dependent FYV. FYV does not contain info whether a period
is open or closed. This is accessed thru open / close posting periods.
• Year dependent fiscal year means the start and end date of the PP of some FY will
be different from the dates of other FY, and / or if some FY use a different no of
PP. If one year of a FYV has less posting periods than others, it is called a
shortened FY. This could be required if closing has to be made before the end of
the normal FY. The shortened FY and its no of PP has to be specified before the
definition of period dates and for this year only, a lesser no of PP can be assigned.
FY can be defined separately in different modules, which will take precedence
over global settings for that module. Year Independent FY

• Assign company code to Fiscal Year Variant. [ OB37 ]
IMG/FA/GLOBAL SETTINGS/DOCUMENT
• Posting Periods : The variant principle is widely used in the R/3 system to assign
special properties to one or more R/3 objects. The advantage of using variants is
that it is easier to maintain properties which are common among several business
objects ( FSV, FYV, PPV )
1. Steps : Define the variant - K4
2. Populate the variant - calender year
3. Assign the variant to the appropriate company code.
• Define Variants for Open Posting Periods : define as necessary. [OBBO]
• Open & Close Posting Periods : In case of a FY which spills over 2 years, define
2002-03 as 2002,2003 with periods 1-12, & 13-16. OB52
• Assign Posting Period Variants to Company Code : assign. [ OBBP ]
IMG > Financial Accounting > FA Global Settings > Document > Posting Period
Define Variants for open Posting Period
Here a name is given to the posting period variant. SAP standard is 0001.
Open & Close Posting Periods
This function is used to allow posting any particular account within a any desired period only. The
variant type defined above is populated with characteristics i.e, in the combination of Variant type,
Account type, Account Nos and Posting Period.
Account types maintained by SAP are
‘+’ Valid for all account types Populating ‘+’ type is necessary even if all account
types have been defined separately
‘A’ Assets
‘D’ Customers
‘K’ Vendors
‘M’ Materials
‘S’ G L Accounts
‘V’ Contract Accounts

Imp: ‘+’ type can be defined without ‘frm a/c’ & ‘to
a/c’ limit, but for others i.e, A, D, K, M & S, a/c limits
are required. However if posting periods are across
accounts, “zzzzzzzzz” must be entered in ‘to a/c’ field.

Assign Variants to Company Code
Variant properties are assigned to a Company code.
• Document Number Ranges : Copy from. Once copied, internal no range is
given. External No range if checked, is to be given by the user. [OBA7]
• Define Document Number Ranges : not necessary if copied earlier.
• Copy to Company Code : not necessary if copied earlier.
• Copy to Fiscal Year : not necessary if copied earlier.
IMG > Financial Accounting > FA Global Settings > Document > Document No Range
Define Document Number Ranges
Here Document No Ranges can be copied from any other existing Company code, Intervals / Ranges
be changed, Status (i.e, whether any external no. is to be used or what should be the status of
current document no.) can also altered. When ‘External’ is selected, SAP does not use internal
Number range but allows user to enter Document number manually.
SAP has defined 54 Document No Ranges ( 00 – 51 & X1 – used for Recurring Documents, X2 – used
for Sample Document). One can select a document number range out of these ranges or range can
also be altered according to ones own specification.
Activity :
Copy from 0001 (SAP standard company) (IN01 does not have any doc no
range)
to ABCD
Copy to Company Code
Document number ranges are Company code specific. Hence Document number range(s) used by
any Company code can be copied to any other Company code.
 Note : Copy function can be possible only if there is no other number range
existing in the target fiscal year or the target company code.
Copy to Fiscal Year
If Document Number ranges have been defined as year-dependent, here range of one year can be
copied to anther year within the same company code.
 Note : If document no range has been defined for any specific year only
(first activity as above), the same can be copied to another year in the same co
code. By putting 9999 in ‘To Year’ field, document no ranges are defined for all
years in that co code.

FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
 Note : Copy function can be possible only if there is no other number range
existing in the target fiscal year or the target company code.

IMG > Financial Accounting > FA Global Settings > Document > Document Header > Document Types
• Document types are defined for customer, vendor and general ledger business
transactions in Financial Accounting. Document types differentiate business transactions
and control document filing.
• A number range is specified for each document type. Document numbers are chosen
from this number range. One number range can be used for several document types.
• Document types are valid for all clients. A number range key is specified for each
document type. Moreover the desired number range intervals for each number range key
based on the company code. This means that one can specify intervals of different sizes
for the same number range.
• The preset document types cover business transactions in Financial Accounting for:
→ General ledger accounting SA
→ Accounts receivable Cust Invoice – DR, Cust Pymt – DZ
Int – DA
→ Accounts payable Vendor Inv – KR, Vendor Pymt – KZ
Int – DA
→ Asset accounting AA
→ Consolidation
IMG/FA/GLOBAL SETTINGS/LINE ITEM/CONTROLS
• Posting Key [ OB41 ] : 40/50 Dr / Cr GL A/c [ global ]
• Field Status Variant [ OBC4 ] : [ local ] - normally copy as. You group several
field status groups into one field status variant. Assign a company code to a FSV.
This allows you to work with the same FSG in any no of co codes. A FSG
determines the screen layout for doc entry. Fields can have the following statuses.
Optional / Required / Suppresed entry. Enter the FSG in the master record of the
GL a/c. When a doc is entered, the definitions stored for the group are effective.
The FSG determines which fields are ready for input, required and hidden. Bear
in mind that additional assignments [ i.e. cost centers or orders ] are only possible
if data can be entered in the corresponding fields.
• Assign FSV to Company Code : assign. [ OBC5 ]
• Screen Variants for Doc Entry :
1. Standard - to be used.
2. Austria & Switzerland
3. France & Witholding Tax – for TDS.
IMG > Financial Accounting > FA Global Settings > Document > Line Items > Controls
Define Posting Keys
There are standard SAP defined posting keys which one has to use. For eg.
40 Dr G/L Account
50 Cr G/L Account
Maintain Field Status Variant
Field Status Variants determine which fields are ‘required’, ‘optional’ or ‘suppressed’ out of available
fields w.r.t various information General, Accounting, Material, Sales, etc in any particular data entry
screen.
SAP has defined a variant type 0001 which contains more than 50 variant groups (all groups pertain to
different information types say, general, material management, Cost account, Asset account, etc.
These groups are associated with respective G/L Accounts so that any data entry relating to that G/L
Account will have fields based on properties of the FSV associated with such G/L Account.

FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
Data fields that can be controlled by FSVs here are:
General Data
Additional account assignments
Payment transactions
Asset accounting
Taxes
Foreign Payments
Consolidation
Real Estate Management
Financial Assets management
Assign Company Code to Field Status Variant
Here a Company is given the properties of FSV as defined above.
• Define Tolerance Groups for Employees : Not defining tolerance groups will
restrict data entry. [ OBA0 / OBA4 ]
1. Valuewise [upto 1,000,000 etc ]
2. Cash Discounts
3. Payment Difference [not recd full amount]
• Assign User / Tolerance Groups : assign. [ Smith = generic ]
IMG > Financial Accounting > FA Global Settings > Document > Line Items > Define Tolerance
Group for Employees
In this activity, amount limits are pre-defined for employees w.r.t the following:
→ the maximum document amount the employee is authorized to post
→ the maximum amount the employee can enter as a line item in a
customer or vendor account
→ the maximum cash discount percentage the employee can grant in a
line item
→ the maximum acceptable tolerance for payment differences for the
employee.
Apart from the above, ‘maximum’ payment difference can also be defined whereby differences are
automatically posted to cash discount, revenue or expense account as required. Any difference is first
adjusted to cash discount (to the extent allowed here and permitted by max cash discount % defined
above) and if this limit is exhausted, balance is adjusted to the revenue or expense account (which
can be a combination of absolute amount & a %)
 Note : Allowed Payment differences are posted automatically within certain
tolerance groups. This way the system can post the difference by correcting the
cash discount or by posting to a separate expense or revenue account.
 Note: There must be at least one Tolerance Group for each Company.
Leaving ‘Group’ field ‘blank’ means the limits are applicable to all the employees. If
any employee(s) is to be allowed some other limits, another Tolerance Group has to
be created and populated with the employee identification (via next IMG step :
“Assign users to Tolerance Groups”). Rest of the employees will be governed by
‘blank’ Tolerance Group.
10 by Harnath
One can customize the status of these groups
as required.

SIMPLE CHART OF ACCOUNTS
• IMG / FA / GL / Master Records :
• Preparation : Edit COA List : Desc, Lang, Length [10], Manual Creation of Cost
Element.
IMG > Financial Accounting > General Ledger Accounting > G/L Accounts > Master Records >
Preparations
Edit Chart of Accounts
• A Chart of Accounts is created with various parameters like Maintenance Language (EN),
Length of G/L Accounts (6), Manual / Automatic creation of cost elements, Group Chart of Accounts
for consolidation purposes, etc.
• Chart of Accounts can be assigned to many companies i.e, it is specific to Company level and
not Company code level.
• G/L Accounts work in association with a specific Chart of Accounts. i.e, If in a company code
G/L accounts have been created w.r.t a Chart of Accounts, such Company code cannot be assigned
any other Chart of Accounts. To do so, first G/L account company code data has to be deleted via
IMG > FA > GL Accounting > GL Accounts > Master Records > Deletion.
• Chart of Accounts can only be deleted if it has not been assigned to any Company or no entry
has been made.
Activity :
Define ABCD ABCCO Chart of Accounts [CAIN is SAP standard COA for India]
Important settings:
Length of G/L accounts 8 (INT has 6 digits)
 Note : even after some G/L a/c s have been created with 8 digits, length can

FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
be changed and the changed length will be applicable to new G/L a/c s created
thereafter. This should not be allowed by SAP.
Controlling integration “manual creation of cost elements”
i.e. user has the option to create related cost element by himself
w.r.t the G/L a/c
other option “automatic creation of cost element”
i.e. related cost element is automatically created on saving the G/L a/c if a default value for
the cost element category has already been set for this cost
element
o Assign Co Code to COA : assign.
Assign Chart of Accounts to Company Code
Unless a Chart of Accounts is assigned, no G/L Account can be created.
Activity :
Assign ABCD (ABCCO – Plant) ABCD (ABCCO Chart of Accounts)
 Note : There is an option of assigning Country COA also in addition to Co
Code specific COA. This would be needed in the following two circumstances:
→ where usage of country chart of accounts is required by law in
some countries.
→ the connection between the account in the worldwide standard
chart of accounts - used by the parent company, and the account
in the country chart of accounts can be set up
o Define A/c Group : COA, A/c group – name, from a/c to a/c which will decide
the no range for the GL a/c, and the entry screens for which dbl click & a/c
control, doc entry etc – Supress / Reqd / Optional.
Define Account Groups
• When creating a G/L account, you must specify an account group.
• The account group determines:
→ the Interval in which the account number can be created using FS00
→ which Fields are ‘Required’, ‘Optional’ and ‘Suppressed’ when creating and changing
master data.
• Account groups for G/L accounts are based on the chart of accounts
• SAP has defined 5 standard Account Groups

12 by Harnath
FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
Define Retained Earnings Account
You assign a retained earnings account to each P&L account by specifying a P&L statement account
type in the chart of accounts area of each P&L account.
At the end of a fiscal year, the system carries forward the balance of the P&L account to the retained
earnings account. You can define one or more P&L statement account types per chart of accounts and
assign them to retained earnings accounts.
SAP has kept this activity in main IMG (instead of leaving it on implementer to create in FS00 mode)
becoz unless this is defined, incomes & expenses of previous period cannot be brought forward.

document. Post with reference will auto return the latest DOC no, so it is
important to remember the latest Doc no pr obtain it from the list. CAN BE USED
FOR REVERSAL POSTINGS ALSO.
G/L Documents Entry FB50 & F-02
 Note : F-02 is basic SAP G/L Document entry screen where each Dr. & Cr.
are entered in separate running screens. While FB50 is fast entry screen where
in one screen only all transactions can be entered.
 Note: F-02 besides the normal entry screen, gives you the option of post
with reference.
o Account Assignment Model : FKMT - like a template. The entire entry can e
prepared & stored under a variant name [ xxyyzz etc ]. Equivalence is like a
%age, where the various a/c’s are denoted in %age terms & when the entry is
called, the amounts get distributed. The entry is stored but not saved, hence dr/cr
need not tally. First create and then go to line items by icon Q [can also be created
from FB50 [use F-02 wef 470] & header edit option]. Use F-02 for entry & recall
the AAM from top button. In case of equivalence enter dr & cr items etc. FB50
can also be use to recall AAM thru Header/Environment/Complex posting etc.
Recalling Account Assignment Model : Before recalling an Account Assignment Model, it should
have been created via Document Entry > Reference Document (FKMT). It can be created
independently or with reference to some existing Model.
“equivalence to” to pre-define % allocation to G/L accounts
“calculate tax” to allow SAP to calculate tax automatically on line items.
 Note : This function is used to pass entries where specific and pre-defined
%s are allocated to various G/L accounts (expenses or income or any other item) out
of a gross Expense or Income for which a G/L document has to entered. eg. annual
payments at fixed point of time in an year which may include pre-paid expenses.

• The document is scheduled to run on a particular date within the 1
st
& last
run & an interval. Transfer amounts in local currency KEEP ON. A run
schedule can also be setup. Here the run date is very important & must be
remembered. To find run date use Lists – F.15 GL/Periodic
processing/Recurring entries Execute F.14 / Lists F.15.
• When you execute, after entering only the necessary parameters [ 1
st
run
etc ] at [process], you will get a message that a session has been created.
If the params are incorrect, the session will not be created.
• To run the session, from header System/services/batch input/sessions
select & process [in background] [sm35]
• Instead of processing above, you can also save as variant, which can be
recalled when a job is created. [The variant saves the parameters defined.
Hence a new parameter is required everytime. Execute thru sessions]
Recurring Document FBD1
If certain transactions appear periodically, and is same in all respect viz amount, Recurring
Document feature allows such entry to be made automatically at regular interval.
First Run time, Last Run time and interval is defined while creating a Recurring document.
Document type need to be specified. i.e, all types of entries can be passed thru Recurring
document feature.
Recurring documents can be Viewed (FBD3), Changed (FBD2), Deleted (F.56) and Changes be
displayed (FBD4)
o Document Parking : SAP/A/c/FA/GL/Doc Entry
• FV50 [ use F-02 wef 470 ] - edit or park G/L Doc
• F-65 - gen doc parking [ posting ] clear with FBV0
The document is parked with a sys generated doc no, but not posted. Hence
it will not appear in the reports like Doc Extract etc. When FV50 is used with
select parked doc [header], you can change the figures, but you can save
only if Dr=Cr. For parking the Dr need not = Cr. [ Useful to leave an entry
halfway. ] When saved, the entry is still not posted. Use post to close the
issue. To clear F-65 parking goto Parked Documents under Documents &
clear with FBV0.
Parking of G/L Documents FV50
A G/L Document can be parked for purposes like capturing of transaction in run-time but posting is
desired later say, after thorough verification by a senior. Various features of Parked Documents are as
follows:
⇒Transaction recorded but not posted
15 by Harnath
FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
⇒Dr. & Cr. need not be tallied for saving Parked documents.
⇒All Parked documents can be Viewed (FBV3), Changed (FBV2) and Posted (FBV0)
⇒All changes in Parked document can be viewed thru Display Changes (FBV5)
⇒Parked Documents, no longer relevant, can be refused thru Refuse Parked Documents (FBV6)
 Note: Parked Docs can also be “Saved as Completed” i.e, all ‘Preparation’,
‘Completion’ and ‘Posting’ function can be segregated for different authorities.
 Note: If the entry screen is in some other Company’s environment, it can be
changed thru “Edit” menu on header (as against “Environment” in some other cases).

FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
Edit, Copy, Delete, Check, Company Code
• Edit Company Code data – Here separate companies are defined within one Company (i.e, a
Group, as defined above) for which separate accounting is being done. Configuration can be made
at the company code level for things which are specific to the company code apart from the general
configuration done at Company level. Here Name, Address & other information are configured w.r.t
the Company Code. Further configuration shall be at other places but the concept is that those will
be specific to a Company code.
• Copy, Delete, Check, Company Code – One can also copy any existing company code data to
a new company code. Or any existing company code data can be changed / deleted. In case of
copying from some existing Company Code all Variants eg. Fiscal Period, Posting Period, Document
No ranges, Field Status variant, Company code data pertaining to G/L Account, etc (defined at
various places) gets copied as is available with the source company.
 Note: If copy function is used after a company code has been defined earlier (as
above), i.e, by giving a new name of target Company, company code data (various parameters)
of source company are not properly copied to the target company code.
 Note: However if copy function is used without defining a Company code first (as
above), SAP copies the address & other details of the source company. So, take care to change
the details accordingly.
 Note: While copying, SAP asks for if the G/L Accounts company code data is also to
be copied ? This should be done only when the source & target companies both come under the
same group and uses the same Chart of Account & G/L Account company code data. Becoz by
saying ‘yes’ here would allow SAP to copy Chart of Accounts & G/L Accounts as used by the
source Company. If any other Chart of Accounts is to be used by the target company, Chart of
Accounts & G/L Accounts Company code data should be copied at IMG > FA > GL Accounting >
GL Accounts > Master Records > GL Account Creation & Processing > Alternative Methods
(Here 'copy company code data’ means company code data pertaining to G/L Accounts only).
Otherwise first G/L Accounts company code data has to be deleted via IMG > FA > GL
Accounting > GL Accounts > Master Records > Deletion and then any other Chart of Accounts
& G/L Account company code data be assigned / copied to the target company.
 Note: G/L Account company code data means G/L accounts and all settings
pertaining to G/L accounts viz reconciliation a/c, taxes allowed or not, FSVs, etc. other company
code data are – fiscal year variants, document no ranges, posting period, etc.
o Assign Co Code to Company.
2. IMG / FA / GL / Master Records : Chart of accounts can be copied for simplicity,
though in realtime, it is created from the opening trial balance, schedules to the annual
accounts etc.
18 by Harnath
FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
3. GL A.c Creation & Proc/Alternative Methods :
o Copy COA [ OBY7 ] – normally copied from INT. Target COA must be NEW.
The COA is copied, but not the co code data like variants etc. It is possible to
delete a COA, if no data is entered, and it is not assigned.
IMG > Financial Accounting > General Ledger Accounting > G/L Accounts > Master Records > G/L
Account Creation & Processing > Alternative Methods
Copy Chart of Accounts : Here Chart of Accounts i.e G/L accounts (but not company code data
pertaining to a G/L accounts) can be copied from an existing Chart of Accounts respectively.
 Note : This function can only be done for a new COA (not an existing one),
but remember to assign the copied COA to the company code first and tehn
proceed to copy company code data (why – see the note below)
Copy Company Code : Here G/L Account Company code data can be copied from an existing company
code similar to the type being created, or can also be defined independently via FSSO.
(both of the above functions saves the user to define everything from the scratch)
 Note : G/L Accounts are always in relation to a Chart of Account, so when G/L Account
company code data is copied either at IMG stage while copying Company code or here without
creating and assigning a required Chart of Accounts, SAP copies Chart of Accounts associated with
the source company, and hence it partakes all the parameters of that Chart of Account.
4. Assign Co Code to COA - [ OB62 ] [Check COA by editing where necessary –
Manual Creation of Cost Elements, Group COA BLANK ]
5. Deletion : As the co code data is not copied, the existing co code data must be deleted,
so that the co code data for the COA can be copied. Therefore DELETE GL A/C WITH
GENERAL MASTER DATA IN CO CODE -----.
IMG > Financial Accounting > General Ledger Accounting > G/L Accounts > Master Records >
Deletions
• Delete G/L Accounts : Deletion here means deletion of G/L Account company code data. If these
data are not deleted, the concerned Chart of Accounts cannot be de-assigned.
→ You can only delete master records of G/L accounts that do not contain any
transaction data. The program does not delete the chart of accounts section of a
G/L account if the account is also a primary cost element in Controlling. You can
delete cost elements using program RKSCUS03.
• Delete Chart of Accounts : Chart of Accounts can only be deleted if it is not assigned
to any company, or after assignment, if no entry has passed (i.e, only then G/L Account data can be
deleted and Chart of Account de-assigned)
o Copy Co Code G/L A/c’s from 0001 : [ OBY2 ] copy. [Message of Diff COA is
ok]

o Change GL A/c Collectively : Mass maintenance where a lot of a/c’s can be
changed one shot. Selection thru top left icon & < & Þ. To get rid of the
characteristics, put a “ “ on the top line, & to check use -. Any other field left
blank, wil be updated as “ “ in all such fields. Hence deselect all such fields which
need not be changed. Useful for “Posting w/o tax allowed etc etc “.
o Define A/c Group : COA, A/c group – name, from a/c to a/c. Field status for a/c
control – Supress / Reqd / Optional. - [ OBD4 ]
o Define Retained Earnings A/c : Like a P&L a/c to collect & carry forward. If it

FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
o Cross Co Transactions : IMG/FA/GLA/BT/PREPARE CROSS CO CODE
TRANSACTIONS : From to is not important, as the a/c is created in both
companies. Dr/Cr for the same a/c. BUV – clearing against 2 co codes. When a
transaction is entered, even though the expense a/c of another co is given, in the
1
st
co the default cross co code will be picked up, and in the 2
nd
co, the other effect
will be borne by the default code. Hence for one entry, two sets of entries are
passed in 2 companies. Ensure that co code is entered in the appropriate line
entry. [ New Co Code in F-02 ]. You can setup pool a/c’s in both companies, and
pass one entry in any one co code. The line where the cross co code is mentioned,
will result in an entry to that a/c, with the pool a/c bearing the other effect in both
co codes.
IMG > Financial Accounting > General Ledger Accounting > Business Transactions > Prepare cross-
co codes transactions
One can define the accounts for the clearing entries the system makes when posting cross-company
code transactions. These clearing entries represent the receivables and payables between company
codes which result from central purchasing or payment.
You can specify G/L accounts as well as customer and vendor accounts for clearing between company
codes.
However, if the company code for which you are posting these items is an external one, then you can
specify only G/L accounts as the clearing accounts.
Customers sometimes make payment to the wrong company in a group of affiliated companies. You
can use cross-company code entry to minimize the number of entries for posting this payment. In
doing so, you debit your bank account (company code 1) and credit the customer account (company
code 2), and the system automatically generates clearing entries between both company codes.
Activity :
Create one pool account (G/L a/c), say 149999 for inter-company transactions in both the companies
that will be debited & credited depending upon the nature of transactions i.e. it is like inter-company
a/c.
Then while in data entry F-02 , note the following :
Situation : Co MRCM receiving payments on behalf of MRCD from the customer (say 2935) of MRCD
1
st
line item entry 40 (dr for SA doc) 113100 (Bank a/c in MRCM)
2
nd
line item entry 15 (cr for incoming pymts) 2935 (customer acct no in
MRCD)
(also put MRCD in ‘other co code’ field in case of second line item)
now this will suitably be reflected in both the companies as follows :
MRCM MRCD
40 dr 113100 amount 15 cr 2935 amount
50 cr 149999 amount (payable) 40 dr 149999 amount
(recvable)
(SAP presents dr & cr in increasing order of numbers)
21 by Harnath
FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
o Reconciliation A/c : Control account 140000 for Customers, 160000 for
Vendors.
o List of A/c created : Info/GL Reports/Master Data S_ALR_87012326 for COA,
S_ALR_87012347 for Doc Extract.
o Post with Reference : SAP/A/C/FA/GL/DocEntry/Others under F-02 general
posting, it is possible to Post with reference. This allows you to call back the
document. Post with reference will auto return the latest DOC no, so it is
important to remember the latest Doc no pr obtain it from the list.
o Account Assignment Model : FKMT - like a template. The entire entry can e
prepared & stored under a variant name [ xxyyzz etc ]. Equivalence is like a
%age, where the various a/c’s are denoted in %age terms & when the entry is
called, the amounts get distributed. The entry is stored but not saved, hence dr/cr
need not tally. First create and then go to line items by icon Q [can also be created
from FB50 [ use F-02 wef 470 ] & header edit option]. Use F-02 for entry & recall
the AAM from top button. In case of equivalence enter dr & cr items etc. FB50
can also be use to recall AAM thru Header/Environment/Complex posting etc.
o Sample Document : F-01 this is a document which can be prepared and stored
for future use. Dr/Cr need not tally. The entry is not saved. Recall with reference
& complete.
o Recurring Document : FBD1
• Scheduled to run on a particular date. The amounts have to be known &
predefined. [ repetitive sales entry etc ]
• The document is scheduled to run on a particular date within the 1
st
& last
run & an interval. A run schedule can also be setup. Here the run date is
very important & must be remembered. To find run date use Lists – F.15
GL/Periodic processing/Recurring entries Execute F.14 / Lists F.15.
• When you execute, after entering only the necessary parameters. [ FBD1
Enter company code, fiscal year, settlement period, which should coincide
with run date and user. [ 1
st
run etc ] at  [process], you will get a
message that a session has been created. If the params are incorrect, the
session will not be created.
• To run the session, from header System/services/batch input/sessions
select & process [in background] [sm35]
22 by Harnath
FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
• Instead of processing above, you can also save as variant, which can be
recalled when a job is created. [The variant saves the parameters defined.
Hence a new parameter is required everytime. Execute thru sessions]
• A job can be created in 2 ways :
o Defining a task : GL/Periodic Processing/Schedule Manager
SCMA When you click on schedule manager, the header will have
an option TASK LIST. Clicking TASK LIST will allow you to
create a task.
o JOB WIZARD : At the SCMA stage, at the header
ENVIRONMENT will allow activation of the Job Wizard to create
a JOB.
º Task List XYZTKL [ create ]
º Transaction F.14
o [an external prg can also be used which SAP will recognize thru
BAPI [Bus Appli Prog Interface]
º Variant[new] XYZREC1 [created earlier]
º JOB XYZJOB [now created]
o Recurring entries therefore have to be run on a particular date.
o Recurring Entries [different dates] :
IMG/FA/FaGLOBAL/DOCUMENT/REC_ENTRIES/Define_Run_Schedule
Enter Run Dates, Give run schedule name & save. When executing a recurring
entry giving the Run Schedule will enable pickup of Run Dates specified. Without
Run Date, the session will not be created.
o Document Parking : SAP/A/c/FA/GL/Doc Entry
• FV50 [ use F-65 wef 470 ] - edit or park G/L Doc
• F-65 - gen doc parking [ posting ] clear with FBV0
The document is parked with a sys generated doc no, but not posted. Hence it
will not appear in the reports like Doc Extract etc. When FV50 is used with
select parked doc [header], you can change the figures, but you can save only
if Dr=Cr. For parking the Dr need not = Cr. [ Useful to leave an entry
halfway. ] When saved, the entry is still not posted. Use post to close the
issue. To clear F-65 parking goto Parked Documents under Documents &
clear with FBV0.

CASH JOURNAL
IMG/FA/BANK A/C / BUS TRANS/ CASH JOURNAL
1. Create GL a/c for Cash Journal – Ensure post automatically is on, so that posting can take
place automatically. [ 100000 Petty Cash A/c ]
IMG > Financial Accounting > Bank Accounting > Business Transaction > Cash Journal
Create G/L Accounts for Cash Journal
It refers to the activity at FS00. Petty cash items are entered thru Cash Journal while in some cases, even
receipt of customer cheques is also allowed.
SAP standard Petty Cash a/c no. is 100000
Important settings are:
FSV G001 (with text, assignment)
Post automatically ‘on’
Relevant to Cash Flow ‘yes’
2. Define doc types for Cash Journal Docs - SK [other doc types SA GL, DZ Customer
Receipt, KZ Vendor Payment] [ OBA7 ]
3. Define No range & interval for Cash Journal documents [ FBCJC1 ] - copy from 0001.
4. Setup cash journal : [ FBCJC0 ]
a. Give a Cash Journal Code
b. Various code for GL A/c’s, Customers, Vendors.
Set up Cash Journal
Here a name (usu. Petty Cash) and code (any numeric or character) is given to the Cash Journal w.r.t the
Company Code. Though CJ code shows a pop-up button, no CJ code is available as it is created here only. So
give any code desired and save.
24 by Harnath
FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
One Cash Journal can be maintained for one currency type. However if one want to maintain more than one
currency in the same Cash Journal, G/L Account for Cash Journal should not have “Post Automatically On”
(FS00).
5. Create, Change, Delete Business Transactions [ FBCJC2 ] : These tran types can be
copied, but as they are linked to GL a/c’s, change as reqd. These can be accessed at
FBCJ.
a. C receipts from bank GL a/c -------
b. B payment ot bank GL a/c --------
c. R Sales
For vendors & Customers, GL a/c’s need not be given, as they will be different for
A/P, A/R.
6. Setup Print params [ FBCJC3 ]– copy from 0001, output device – LP01.
7. Posting - SAP/A/c/FA/GL/Doc Entry - Cash Journal Posting FBCJ

o Define A/c Groups with Screen Layout : Edit field status (Cust) [ OVT0]
IMG > Financial Accounting > AR & AP > Customer Accounts > Master Data > Preparations
Define Account Groups with screen layout (customers)
Account Groups are defined to
→ the interval for the account numbers
→ whether the number is assigned internally by the system or
externally by the user (type of number assignment)
→ which fields are ‘mandatory’, ‘optional’ or ‘suppressed’ when
creating and changing master records (field status) – this will
depend on the type of customer a/c i.e. if it is a one-time
customer, customer to whom goods are sold/delivered/billed
(these may be different persons)
 Note : Here status of fields (FSV) are defined in each ‘Account Group’
created i.e. it is not that FSV as defined at IMG > Financial Accounting > FA
Global Settings > Document > Line Items > Controls (which is assigned to the
company code)
Difference : FSV here relates to Customer master database, whereas FSV at co code
level relates to transactions with the customers.
When creating a customer account, you must specify an account group. You can specify a reference
account group under "Control" in the "General data" part of any customer account's master data.
 Note : If you do not specify a reference account group, then, as previously,
25 by Harnath
FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
all fields of the customer’s account screen are ready for input during document
entry.
 Note : The reconciliation account field is defined as a required field since a
reconciliation account must also be specified for the one-time accounts. This field is
company code-dependent.
As many as 22 SAP standard settings are available:
Sold To Party 0001 One-time Cust (int no.) CPD
Goods Recipient 0002 One-time Cust (ext no.) CPDA
Payer 0003 Customer (general) DEBI
Bill To Party 0004 etc Customer (ext no.)
KUNA, etc.
For each Account Group:
→ an “Output Determination Procedure” is assigned,
→ specific “FSV Parameters w.r.t General Data, Company code data and
Sales data” are set as per the requirement, and
→ it specified whether it is a one-time account
There are 5 SAP defined “Output Determination Procedure” i.e. procedure to control output say,
Invoices, etc:
Sold To Party DB0001
Ship To Party DB0002
Bill To Party DB0003
Output For Payer DB0004
One can define his own Account Group, set FSVs as required, but “Output Determination Procedure”
has to be selected out of the above.
 Note : Account groups once assigned to a customer master & transactions
entered cannot be de-assigned, but FSV (earlier data relating to these fields remain
intact) and number ranges can be changed later.
o Define Screen Layout for Co Code : Dunning – SAP term for sending reminders
to customers.
Define Screen layout per Company code (customer)
Within a general setting for an Account Group, FSV settings can be changed for a specific Company
code. Here only Company code data (as defined at Account Group level) can be changed.
 Note: This function should be used only in exceptional circumstances. Normally this
requirement is controlled thru Account Groups (above) only.
o Define Screen Layout per Activity
Define Screen Layout per Activity (customer)
This IMG activity relates to creation of Customers. Three options are available to create customers:
Document
Entry
Create customer (Accounting) Only General & Company Code data
FD01
Create customer (Sales) Only General & Sales data
VD01
Create customer (Centrally) All of three

 Note:
• FSV parameters can be defined for any of these activity and is a general
specification for creation of all Customer. Any different requirement regarding the
fields in relation to any customer or class of customer, for eg. Suppressing
redundant details in case of one-time customers, etc can further be controlled
through FSV for ‘Account Groups’.
• Creation of customer, in real-time, originate from Sales & Distribution deptt, and
details relevant to FI can be fed by Finance deptt via FD02.
Account groups are linked with each of the customer (not co code) in its master record i.e. customer
are created under one of the Account groups.
o Define Industries
o Create No Ranges [ XDN1 ]
Create Number Ranges for Customer Accounts
SAP standard Number ranges are available. However one can change range interval and status
(external or internal) as per requirement.
 Note : External number assignment useful if you transfer master data from a
pre-system or an existing system. In all other cases, you should use the internal
number assignment.
The SAP system offers a number of help functions to determine an account number. Therefore the
account numbers no longer have to be "mnemonic". The help functions include the ‘matchcode’ or the
‘Previous acct no’ field in the customer/vendor master record.
o Assign No Ranges
Assign Number Ranges to Customer Account Groups
One type of Number range can be assigned to many Account Groups. Or, one can have separate no
ranges for separate Account groups.

FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
o Define A/R pledging indicator 1 = open. The AR pledging indicator should be
activated to allow PDC to be accounted on the date mentioned. Another field
“probable time until check is paid” refers to realization time i.e. 3 days for local
clg will give an accurate cash forecast.
Define Accounts Receivable Pledging Indicator
You use the accounts receivable factoring indicator to select customer master records and line items
within a company code to participate in the factoring procedure.
Before this factoring procedure must have been activated for the co code via IMG > Financial
Accounting Global Settings > Company Code > Activate Accounts Receivable Factoring Procedure per
Company Code.

º Customers bank data is to print customers bank details on the receipts
º Reconciliation account is 140000
º Sort key 001 by posting date
º Head office of the customer
º Cash management group for cash flow
º Value adjustment key for closing valuation of F/E valuation.
º Interest calculation – Last date will enable interest calculation from date

º “Slowly changing dimension “ to denote the details of a customer are
slowly changing and hence the need to maintain a payment history etc.
º Payment date [actually meant for Vendors]
• Only cash discount allowed
• Bill of exchange terms 0001 immediate.
• Known/negotiated/leave holidays can be used to avoid invoice
generation on such dates and avoid disputes in delayed payments.

Payments
Define Tolerances (Customer)
In this step, you specify the tolerances for customers. These tolerances are used for dealing with
differences in payment and residual items which can occur during payment settlement.
Allocate a tolerance group to each customer via the master record. For each tolerance group, specify the
following:
• Tolerances up to which differences in payment are posted automatically to expense or revenue
accounts when clearing open items.
• The handling of the terms of payment for residual items, if they are to be posted during clearing
 Note : Tolerance group created with ‘blank’ applies to all customers (as it is
defined for a company code) to whom any specific tolerance group is not assigned. If any
specific group is defined, it must be assigned to a customer account via ‘master record’.
[i.e. at least one tolerance group – ‘blank’ must be defined]
 Note: A ‘Payment term’ or a ‘Dunning key’ can also be assigned to tolerance group for posting
residual items from payment differences.

Maintain Terms of payments
Terms of Payments i.e, due date, discounts %s if paid before due date, etc are defined and stored
under a four-character key. terms of payment is assigned to the customers in the master record via
the key.
 Note : One can use the same key for the terms of payment for both
customers and vendors who have the same payment terms. But in such a case any
changes made for either customer 0r vendor will automatically affect both. Hence it
is recommended to use different terms of payment keys for customers and vendors
and limit the permitted account type correspondingly within the terms of payment.
SAP has provided 11 default payment terms types (0001 – 0011). Changes in standard settings are
normally not needed except where
• a separate help text for a payment term is needed which deviates from the explanations
created automatically
• an account type i.e. a particular transaction type with a customer, has to be excluded for a
payment term (in the standard system, a payment term applies to all account types of the
business partner)
• change the payment conditions for a payment term
Terms of payment are defined in the following manner:
Paymt Terms Text
0008 14 days/2%, 30 days/1.5%, 45 days net
Day limit Expl.
15 within 14 days, 2% dis

 Note : Terms of payment (discount, etc) shall be considered after the
‘baseline date’.
 Note : If day limit is ‘nil’, baseline date is date of invoice i.e. becomes
immediately due.
 Note : ‘day limit’ is used where ‘baseline date’ (due date of payment) is
specified based on a period range during which invoices are raised, eg. For all
invoices raised upto 15

Define Terms of Payment for Installments
First, define a term of payment as above with following parameters:
Text Payable in x installments
Own expl. ‘Blank’ (SAP gives system generated explanation)
Installment Payment ‘on’ (do not put any discount %s)
Then specify % of installment amounts under IMG activity “Define Terms of Payment for Installment”.
It should be remembered here that each installment also has its terms of payment. Therefore for a 5
installment method, there will be 6 payment terms.
 Note : SAP defaults can be altered / new ones created to suite the specific user
requirements. Due date is specified by selecting “payment terms” while defining installments – it
can be different for different installments.

In FI all taxes are inclusive. For exclusive tax, settings are to be made in the pricing condition for
the tax condition type MWST [TAXJ]. Once taxes are defined, mass maintenance “posting w/o tax
allowed” to be changed. In case of specific accounts like sales 800000 the tax code will have to
be specified like output tax etc. At the invoice stage also, calculate tax will have to be checked -
to avoid error messages at saving time.

Check Calculation Procedures
Define Access Sequences : SAP has pre-defined 3 Access sequences
MWST - Tax Indicator (I/O taxes only)
37 by Harnath
FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
TAXJ - US Taxes with Jurisdiction
USTX - US Taxes
We will use ‘TAXJ’ access sequence, as it is based on jurisdictions.
Define Condition Types : Condition types are made use of for defining Tax Calculation Procedure. SAP has defined
condition types for different jurisdiction levels in US (JR1, JR2, etc)
Jurisdiction in US works as States → County → City (Tax in each
jurisdiction depend on taxation in preceding jurisdiction)
In India jurisdiction are at horizontal level and there is no vertical jurisdictional dependency. So Indian jurisdictions
can be designed as consisting of one level only.
We used JR1 condition type of TAXUSJ to define the following condition types:
• JT1, JT2, JT3 : BED Payable, AED Payable and SED Payable resp.
• JT6, JT7, JT8 : CST–C Form Payable, CST w/o C Form Payable and LST payable resp.
• JR1, JR2, JR3 : BED Recov, AED Recov and SED Recov resp.
• JR6, JR7, JR8 : CST–C Form Recoverable, CST w/o C Form Recoverable and LST Recoverable
resp
with “Jurisdiction level 1 or 2”, (depending on whether jurisdiction level is defined as one or ‘two’) – [see notes on
structure for tax jurisdiction below] and “Access Sequence – TAXJ”
Check Calculation procedure :
Note: Before defining calculation procedure, first check whether G/L accounts and respective accounting
keys relevant to all types of taxes have been created (FS00)
We created 175001, 175002, 175003 for BED Payable, AED Payable, SED Payable respectively. Note the following
settings:
Status B/S Item
Posting allowed in only Local currency
Tax category ‘>’ (Output Tax)
Post Automatically is “on”
Note: Ensure that Accounting keys relevant to each tax types have been defined under “Check
and change Settings for Tax Processing”
We used procedure TAXUSJ (call it TAXINJ) with necessary modifications as follows:
Step Cond Type Desrption frm step to step acctg key
100 BASB Base Amount
110 JT1 BED Payable 100 JT1
120 JT2 AED Payable 100 JT2
130 JT3 SED Payable 100 JT3
190 MWS1 Subtotal 100 130
510 JT6 CST-C Form Pay 190 JT6
520 JT7 CST w/o C Form Pay 190 JT7
530 JT8 LST Payable 190 JT8
(Similarly for JR1 – JR8 also)
Assign Country to Calculation Procedure
Here calculation procedure is assigned to a company code.
38 by Harnath
FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
Check and change Settings for Tax Processing
Here a tax process for each tax type has to be defined . This serves as accounting key in Calculation Procedure
(discussed above), helps in linking posting to G/L accounts etc (as discussed later). The important settings here are:
Tax type ‘1’ i.e. Output Tax
Posting Indicator ‘2’ i.e. Separate Line Item
Specify structure for Jurisdiction Code
Here structure guides SAP to determine various jurisdictions in one level and also whether a code is in level 1 or
level 2 and so on. As in India we have only one level of taxes we specified a size of ‘6’ to our Jurisdiction structure.
 Note: If we define only one level, while selecting jurisdiction codes in definition of tax codes, it will
give us option of selection by State (Country) only and not by County (State) and hence all jurisdictions code (in
our case 26*16) will pop-up. So its better to define two levels, 2 – for Country and 4 – for States.
IN 10 00
Country State for various categories of jurisdiction
Define Jurisdictions
We defined Jurisdictions as follows (e.g. for Karnataka State):
IN0001 Foreign Jurisdiction - US, Custom (BCD)
IN0002 Foreign Jurisdiction - US, Custom (BCD, CVD)
IN1001 KAR, Branch, Excise (BED)
IN1002 KAR, Branch, Excise (BED,AED)

DUNNING
IMG/FA/ARAP/BT/Dunning/Basic Settings for Dunning
While posting repeated invoices, if the credit limit is crossed, you may not be permitted to enter
further invoices. In such a case, IMG/ES/Defi/Define Credit Control Area. If a credit limit is not
set, you cannot enter invoices.
• Define Dunning area : for each co code, a dunning area is defined.
REMINDERS TO CUSTOMERS – DUNNING
IMG > Financial Accounting > AR & AP > Business Transaction > Dunning > Basic Settings for Dunning
Define Dunning Areas
Dunning area represents a sub-structure of the Company code. If different responsibilities and different dunning
procedures exists within a company code, one can set up corresponding dunning areas.
Dunning areas are used if several organizational units are responsible for carrying out dunning within one company
code. These organizational units are referred to as dunning areas. The dunning area can correspond, for example,
to a profit center, a distribution channel, a sales organization or a business area.
The individual dunning areas can use different procedures or the same dunning procedure.
 Note : The dunning areas with the required dunning procedures are to
be entered into the customer or vendor master record if you use different
dunning procedures.
Otherwise, the system uses the standard dunning procedure. The dunning area is then entered in the line item.
The system enters the dunning area into the master record automatically with the corresponding data.
• Define dunning keys : max 4 levels are possible like 1,2,3 reminders etc.
Define Dunning keys
Dunning keys define how much / many notices have to be sent to customers. i.e.,
key 1 (max level = 1) → only one notice
44 by Harnath
FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
key2 (max level = 2) → two notices, etc.
Note the settings:
key max level print separately text
1 1 Triggers maximum dunning level 1
2 2 Triggers maximum dunning level 2
3 3 Triggers maximum dunning level 3
z √ payment has been made
• Define dunning block : for legal cases, dunning must be blocked.
Define Dunning Block Reason
Dunning can be run for Customer account group as a whole.
If a particular customer need not be dunned, his master data should ‘select’ the ‘reason’. Reasons for a dunning
block are defined under a key. The key can be entered in an item or in the master record of a customer’s account.
SAP default keys are:
‘Blank’ freed for Dunning
* Dunning Interface
A Manual Block Reason, etc
Define Dunning Groupings
Dunning notices are generally created per business partner. In special cases, it can be useful to group together the
open items of a business partner according to certain aspects and dun these items together.
In order to group items together for dunning notices, you need to define grouping keys (two-character,
alphanumeric). For each key, specify a field from the line item whose contents are to comprise the main criteria for
the group. Items whose contents in this field are identical, are dunned together.
Define Interest rates (for Dunning)
Interest indicator is defined here specifying interest rates (and validity date) on dr. & cr. items for the purposes of
dunning run.
• Define dunning procedure : [ FBMP ]
o Dunning interval - frequency of dunning e.g. 14 days
o Totaled for items – when a dunning level 1 is maintained, totaling takes place
level 2 onwards. If level 0 is maintained, all items are totaled. The totaled items
are for threat perception etc. In Germany, court orders can only be issued level 3
onwards for total of all items dunned.
o Minimum day arreas : atleast one item must have a dunning notice to be created.
The minimum days in arrears have no influence on calculation of the days
overdue.
o Line item grace periods e.g. 3
o Interest indicator HI
o Public holiday calender 99 international IN for India.
o Std transactions set on, o/wise spl GL like downpayments will also be considered.
o Reference dunning process @ 0001. You can create your own dunning letters
using SAPSCRIPT [ similar to ABAP ].
o Dunning levels [top button] - day in arrears @ 30 i.e. dun after 30 days.
o Calculate interest - set on after level 2 as letters after 2 i.e. 3 only have interest
mentioned.
o Always dun keep on E
o Print all items keep on E E E E
o Payment deadline @ 7 i.e. after dunning letter, deadline to receive payment.
45 by Harnath
FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
o Legal dunning procedure E for items where legal letters to be sent [after 3 levels
etc]
o Charge for dunning - the charge for dunning can be fixed or a %age depending
on the parameters set. Here a %age may help, as minimum amounts for dunning
are set, sometimes if the total o/s is low, an item may not come into the dunning
process at all. The %age is based on the total o/s of that customer. You cannot
define a fixed dunning charge, and a %age based charge at the same time.
o Minimum amounts for dunning - the minimum amount to be considered for
dunning. %age of amounts means %age to total of open items [for a customer]. If
both are set, both conditions must be met.
o Minimum amount to be included in dunning
o Dunning text – forms are designed and can be changed using ABAP [a/c type D]
[Ensure the DUNNING TEXT FORMS EXIST]
o Spl GL indicator - whether to dun.
For checking dunning open a separate a/c and raise invoices backdated, so that
dunning runs can take place with the interval applicable. It may be necessary to open
posting period suitably. The posting date will also have to be backdated and credit
limit reset. In case of existing customer, ensure dunning procedure is set.
IMG > Financial Accounting > AR & AP > Business Transaction > Dunning > Dunning Procedure
Define Dunning procedure FBMP
Dunning procedures are company code independent i.e. one dunning procedure can be assigned to
more than one co codes – it is assigned to each of the customer via master records.
They determine the ‘dunning interval’, ‘the grace periods for the due date determination’, and ‘the
number of dunning levels’. You can also set the dunning level at which you want to list all due items
from an account in the dunning notice.
A customer account is only included in dunning if it assigned a dunning procedure in its master data.
To exclude an account from dunning, you can set a dunning block for it in the master data.

Interest indicators determine whether they are to be used for the item interest calculation i.e. interest on
balance after giving effect of each dr or cr entries or account balance interest calculation i.e. interest on
net debit / credit balance. [though these indicators can also be used for interest on payables, in practice
this is not normally needed]
Interest indicator is assigned to a customer account vis master data.

Interest on arrears - Customers
In this step, you define the specifications for posting the interest calculated as interest on arrears.
The account determination is carried out via the posting interface of application 0002 (interest on arrears).
The following specifications are necessary:
• Account determination keys and posting details
First you determine which account determination keys are used. For the business transaction
account determination key, 1000 (interest earned) and 2000 (interest paid) should be entered.
The other account determination keys (company code, interest indicator, business area) are
optional. You use them if you want to define interest posting in more detail.
For every combination of the account determination keys, you specify a debit posting key, a credit
posting key and account symbols (posting details). You use the account symbol 1000 for the
customer posting. It is not necessary to specify an account since the posting is made to the
customer account. You do, however, have to specify the posting keys.
• G/L accounts
For each G/L account symbol, you specify the account allocation for interest earned and interest
paid in full. You can differentiate the account specifications according to currencies.

FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
In this step, you define the specifications for posting the interest calculated on the customer account
balance.
The account determination is carried out via the posting interface of application 0005 (customer interest
scale). The following specifications are necessary:
• Account determination keys and posting details
For the business transaction account determination key, you enter at least one set of posting
details for the interest earned posting and the interest paid posting respectively.
If you are using interest splitting, you should also enter a set of posting details for each of the
following business transactions:
→ minus debit interest past period with post-entered value dates, minus credit
interest past period with post-entered value dates
→ debit interest past period with post-entered value dates, credit interest past
period with post-entered value dates
→ debit interest calculation period, credit interest calculation period.
• G/L accounts
Assign accounts in full to the account symbols for the respective interest earned posting or
interest paid posting. Only the posting key is relevant for the customer posting. It is stored in the
posting details. An entry in the G/L account field of the account allocation is not necessary here
(customer posting).
• Assign Form for Int Indicator

[Set up all Company codes for payment transactions is similar to as discussed in Accounts Receivable]
Set up Payment methods per Country for Payment Transactions
The payment method determines how payments are to be made, e.g. by Check, Bank transfer or Bill of
exchange.
Payment methods are entered in the master records of customers and vendors in order to specify how
payments are made. If an open item is to be paid using a specific payment method, enter it in the open
item. The terms which have been defined for the payment method must be satisfied for the payment.
All payment methods are displayed in the customer or vendor master record in the screen for selecting the
payment method. Here you select the required payment method by marking it; the system transfers the
payment methods to the customer/vendor master record.
Important settings:
Required entries in the master record – such as Bank details, SWIFT code or collection authorization.
Note : If the required details have not been entered in the master record, the payment
method cannot be used.
Posting specifications i.e. Document types – ZP for Payment posting, ZA for clearing payments
Set up Payment methods per Company code for payment transactions
In this activity, you specify which payment method can be used per company code and determine the
conditions under which a payment method should be used.
Important Settings: Minimum & Maximum amount limits for payments
Note : A maximum amount must be specified otherwise the payment method cannot be
used. If you specify the payment method in an open item, the payment program ignores
the amounts you enter here.
Optimization
• by bank groups – If you optimize by bank groups, money is transferred from the house
bank to the business partner's bank in the shortest possible time. For this to be possible,
you assign all banks in the master records to a bank group defined by you.
• by postal codes – If you optimize by postal codes, the house bank selection is determined
by the business partner's domicile. If you select the "Optimization by postal codes" field,
you can go directly to the activity for assigning house banks to an interval of postal
codes.

FOREIGN CURRENCY VALUATION AT CLOSING
Valuation of open items at closing date (B/S date) at exchange rate prevalent on the closing date is done
as follows:
Set Exchange rates
[SAP Menu > Accounting > Financial Accounting > Accounts Receivable > Environment > Current
Settings]
Here an exchange rate can be defined for an ‘exchange rate type’ and with a validity period. Any
document posted within this period will be converted at this rate for posting purposes.
Exchange rate types are:
Standard Bank selling rate B
Standard Bank buying rateG
Standard average rate M
 Note : However in real-time, this field is linked to an on-line system and reflects
real-time rate at any point of time.
Valuate Open Items in Foreign Currency F.05
[SAP Menu > Accounting > Financial Accounting > Accounts Receivable > Periodic Processing > Closing >

IMG > Enterprise Structure > Definition > Financial Accounting
Define Credit Control Area OB45
The Credit Control Area is an organizational unit that specifies and checks a credit limit for customers.
Credit limit, Risk group (create – OB01) and Credit representative group (create – OB02) all are specific to
a Credit Control Area. Whenever a new customer is created and any CCA is assigned in master record, all
parameters, which are specific to such CCA, get assigned to the customer automatically.
A CCA can include one or more Company codes but not vice-versa i.e. if “all Co codes” is selected ‘√’ while
defining a CCA, it would be applicable to all company codes defined in a Company. (i.e. it can be available
to ‘one or all’, but not ‘some’ company codes). Within a CCA, the credit limits must be specified in the
same currency.
The credit control area 0001 is defined in the SAP standard system.
 Note: SAP has defined 3 update types for SD updation – 000012, 000015, 000018

→ If SAP system is a Retail one
Define, Copy, Delete, Check, Plant OX10
• A Plant is an operating area or branch within a company. To use the SD module a Plant
must be created.
• It has got different meaning in different SAP modules:
→ MM : Location where material stock is kept
→ PP : Manufacturing facility
→ SD : Location from where material and services are distributed and corresponds to a
distribution centre.
 Note: Even is case of service organization, Plant has to be defined and here it would
mean the ‘Location’ services are rendered from.
• Data specific to a Plant are – Address / Language / Country / Own Material
Master Record.
• The Plant plays an important role in Material Valuation / Inventory
Management / MRP / Production / Costing / Plant Maintenance

• Sales organization is an organizational unit in Logistics which groups the enterprise
according to the requirements of sales & distribution. A sales organization is responsible for
distributing goods and services, therefore it is also liable for the sold product and responsible
for the customer’s right of recourse.
• The sales organization is also used to take for example, a regional, national or international
sub-division of markets into account.
• A Sales organization is specific to a Company code. However, one or more Plants can be
assigned to one Sales organization.
• A Sales organization has its own customer and material master data as well as its own
conditions and pricing.
• All items in a sales & distribution document, that is, all items of an order, delivery or a billing
document are specific to a Sales organization.
• A Sales organization is the highest summation level (after the Client level) for sales statistics
with their own statistics currency.
A Sales organization cannot share any master data with other sales organizations. The master
data must be created separately. The data for a distribution channel or a division can,
however, be created for several distribution channels or divisions.

Check Master data for Account assignment (Revenue Determination)
Material Account Assignment group & Customer Account Assignment group:
• SAP uses this parameter (group) when creating an accounting document from a billing
(sales) document. In case of each of these, one ‘alphanumeric’ key can be defined which can have upto
‘two’ characters and a description.
• Revenue accounts have been sub-divided into FI and CO, hence account groups have to
be defined in co-ordination with FI & CO.
• Example Account groups can be:
Material 01 Finished Products (FERT)
02 Packaging material (VERP), etc
Customer 01 Domestic Revenues
02 Foreign Revenues, etc
• make sure that account group keys are entered in the Material master and Customer
master record.

Define Access sequence and Account determination types
Maintain Access sequences for Account determination: SAP standard Access sequence for Account
determination is available with key “KOFI”.
Define Account determination type: Here condition types can be defined to be used by Access sequences
(as defined above). For simplicity sake, define a condition type “KOFI” (Account determination with CO) &
“KOFK” (Account determination with CO) and assign it the access sequence KOFI (SAP standard – as
defined above).
Note: In Account determination procedure, under ‘requirement’ field, KOFI will be assigned “3” i.e, without
CO Acct assignment, and KOFK will be assigned “2” i.e, with CO Acct assignment. (this 2 & 3 must have
been defined earlier somewhere else.)
Note: Both KOFI & KOFK shall be within same step sequenced by ‘counter’ 1 & 2.

Define Account determination procedure: Here a procedure is defined which SAP uses to check the
sequence (steps) in which ‘determination types’ (as defined above) are to be used for revenue
determination. SAP standard procedure is available with key “KOFI00”.
Assign Account determination procedure: Procedure (defined above) is allocated to ‘Billing types’ (eg
Invoice, Credit Memo, etc) for which a corresponding account determination is to be carried out.
o Define & assign a/c keys
º ERL, ERS, EWS, MWS
Define and Assign Accounting keys
Accounting keys, when assigned, link the condition types (determination types) to the respective G/L
accounts. These are defined in co-ordination with FI. SAP standard accounting keys are:

 Note: An old version transaction code VOK0 is quite useful, as it displays all functions
related to defining, populating and assigning pricing procedure in one screen only (by header menus).
Header > pricing procedure
Define Pricing procedure V/08
SAP has standard pricing procedures for many a cases, yet if a different procedure has to be created, an
existing procedure can be copied and changes be made via condition types to suite the requirement in
hand.
 Note: It is recommended that copy be made by prefixing ‘Z’ to the original procedure.
SAP standard pricing procedure for Product Catalogue is WMP001 which (incorporates taxes in pricing) but
it has condition type MWST i.e. only I/O taxes, which we will copy to ZWMP001 and incorporate various
condition types for excise duties and sales taxes that we defined in FI.
 Note: WMP001 does not have any condition type for discounts and other considerations
(which are mainly defined and populated in SD) which can of course be added but for simplicity sake,
we will proceed with simple ‘base amount’ and ‘taxes’ only (which have been defined and populated in
FI).
 Note: For taxes, check the following setting:
Reqt 10 i.e. Plant is Set

Maintain Condition Types and Access Sequences V/06 & V/07
Normally SAP standard condition types and Access sequences (say MWST) will be available in both FI & SD
(in SD, there is table for each condition “Create Condition Tables” besides the “Define Condition Types”
function, the latter being same as in FI).
As we have defined our condition types (JT1, JT2, etc) and access sequence (TAXINM) ourselves, it has to
be ensured that the condition types and access sequence and all relevant Account keys are made
available in SD also.

o A/c determination wizard [DO NOT COMPLETE]. You make configurations
relevant to transactions in Inventory Management & invoice verification [for
automatic postings to GL a/c in Financial Accounting & Cost Accounting]
o You do the above, with/without the wizard or a combination of both
o The wizard always reads the existing customization settings first. These are
displayed as defaults & form the basis for further adjustments.
o Pre-requisites co code, plant, material types
o Select material type used FERT - finished goods. Check E only material types
in use & be careful when you uncheck a material type. If a material type is
unchecked, you cannot post to that material type.
o Activate purchase a/c mgmt Y/N
o Activate purchase a/c mgmt for co codes
o Assign chart of accounts
o Assign plants to groups - all plant or co codes in the same group will post
identically
o Examine different material types - SAP assumes that inventory related a/c’s will
differ by material type. However some a/c postings like freight may not differ by
material. Hence if you select ”Yes”, it would mean that even non – material types
like freight are material type dependent.
o Select a/c postings
o Maintain valuation classes - ideally you should have one valuation class per
material type.
o Maintain inventory accounts - stock a/c nos to be filled up. Internal processing
key BSX. BSX rule for valuation is always set “ON”. BSX rules for dr/cr & a/c
modifier is always set “OFF”.
o Maintain dr/cr rule : in MM there are transactions & events that may be posted
to the Expenses/Revenue a/c or to Price Differences. This a/c is either dr or cr
depending on whether then transactions or event requires a correction to your
disadvantage [DR] or in your favour [CR]. You can setup two a/c’s, so that a DR

FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
is posted to one & a CR to another. Checking a checkbox E will set the DR/CR
rule “ON” for the corresponding internal process key. The process keys are :
º Cost [price] differences PRD
º Exp/rev from stock transfer AUM
º Exp/inc from revaluation UMB
º Offsetting entry for inventory postings GBB
º Exp/rev from consignment mat consumption AKO
o Maintain MM Transactions - start with the 1
st
incomplete transaction [no green
mark] & work your way down. If you are unsure of an a/c, leave it blank, &
change later. By entering corresponding nos to each transaction for a material
movement, you are assigning a/c nos to the internal process keys. Depending on
its rules, some process keys may have more than one a/c no. in this case the
wizard takes you to a detail screen.

requirements. The chart of depreciation enables you to manage all rules for the valuation of assets in a
particular country or economic region.
SAP provides country-specific charts of depreciation with predefined depreciation areas. These charts of
depreciation serve only as a reference for creating your own charts of depreciation, and are therefore not
directly accessible in the SAP system. When creating a chart of depreciation, you have to copy the reference
chart of depreciation.
o Specify description - change desc
o Copy delete depreciation areas
º Book dep, IT dep etc
º Real dep areais posted to GL, unlike IT dep which is not posted
º Negative values in assets are allowed
º Proportion of depreciation – if the divisor is 2, ½ the value is considered
for dep etc.
Depreciation Areas
Depreciation area is set up to handle depreciation for a particular purpose say, tax depr, book depr, cost
accounting depr, etc.
Depreciation area can be ‘real’ or ‘derived’.
→ ‘Real’ depreciation area is which get posted to G/L accts and reflected in financial statements P&L
a/c and B/S (book depr), statutory reporting (tax depr) or other internal management reporting
purposes (cost accounting depr).
→ ‘Derived’ depr area is one which derives its value form real depr and is used in cases where
additional or special depreciation is allowed.
Each depr area belongs to at least one ‘chart of depr’, but other depr area can also be defined in any such
‘chart of depr’ so that values of one area can be taken over by other area. For e.g.

o Assign COD to co code [ OAOB ]
o Specify number assignment across co codes [ AO11 ]
º Use co code for assignment of no ranges
Specify number assignment across Company Codes
In SAP, assets are created with ‘Main Asset No’ under which many assets are created with sub-numbers. It is
possible to define ‘Main Asset No’ across various Company codes. If this is done valuation can be done by
main asset no which shall include data for all sub-nos irrespective of its location.
However if no such setting is desired, same co code (i.e. ‘ABCD’ if configuring ABCD) must be assigned to the
company code being configured.
• Asset Classes [ DO NOT COMPLETE ]
o Generate asset classes from GL a/c’s
º Select APC [acquisition & prodn costs]
º Checking the APC indicator will generate an asset class
º Enter default a/c’s for all a/c determinations [825000]
o Specify A/c determination - suffix for VA [value adjustment] is 010. Hence if
Bldg = 2000, accum dep is 2010 [199990 clg asset acqui]
o Create screen layout rules - as porposed by system
o Define no ranges interval - as proposed by system [ AS08 ]
o Define asset classes - [ OAOA ]
o Specify COD dependent screen layout / account assignment
º Normally not reqd, unless you want these control specs to be country
specific i.e. COD dependent.
IMG > FA > Asset Accounting > Organizational Structure > Assets Classes
Generate Assets Classes from G/L accounts (1 to 1)
Here Asset classes are generated in a 1 to 1 relationship to G/L accounts. The system enters ‘Account
determinations’, ‘Screen layout rules’ and ‘Number ranges’ in the asset class as control parameters.
 Note: Carrying out this step is not mandatory. Generating Asset classes from G/L accounts is an
optional step and can be used to simplify the creation of asset classes.

Post assets in G/L

No values are

FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
 Note: Alternatively, Asset classes can be defined or copied without the help of G/L accounts using
the step “Define asset classes”. Copying classes is useful for adding to Asset classes, already generated from
G/L accounts (using the current step). Additional account determinations, Screen layout controls and Number
ranges, in case of alternative method, can be defined in the section “Organizational Structures”.
SAP supplies example asset classes.
Activities:
A Wizard guides through the 7 different navigation steps. Asset classes are not generated until saved.
 Note: If a wizard is not run or any change is desired after it has run, next 4 IMG activities – ’specify
account determination’, ‘create screen layout rules’, ‘define number range intervals’ and ‘define asset classes’
– assumes importance.
(configuration in following steps are meant for Plant & Machinery)
Step 1 Enter chart of accounts and the chart of depreciation.
Step 2 Whole list of G/L accounts appear, out of which G/L accounts that are APC (Acquisition and Production
Costs) balance sheet accounts, i.e. Assets, are selected. SAP creates Assets classes (similar to the G/L
a/c no in description), for those G/L accounts that are selected as APC accounts. (as in 7
th
step, asset
class automatically appears)
Step 3 Enter G/L accounts for Expense-ordinary depreciation, and Asset retirements – revenue clearing, loss
or gain for all account determinations. (In a later step however, one can change these accounts for each
account determination).
Step 4 System asks for suffix for VA accounts (Value Adjustment i.e. depreciation accounts) ‘10’ will result in
acc deprn as 11010 for asset class 11000.
 Note: The system prepares an account determination and corresponding accumulated
depreciation for each APC account, with a description that is the same / similar to that of the given APC
account. (as shown in the 4
th
step i.e. suffix for VA accounts)
account determination 11000 (comes auto) G/L a/c is also 11000
accumulated depreciation 11010 (comes auto)
Step 5 A number range interval is defined for each APC account. And one can change the number range
intervals as needed:
• Change the limits of the number ranges.
• Specify whether the assignment of the main asset number should be external or internal.
01 000000010000 000000019999 external - ‘off’
 Note: SAP recommends internal number assignment. However, one can define the number range
intervals, for example, so that the first characters of the asset number agree with the first characters of
the APC account number.
Step 6 The system creates a screen layout control for each APC account.
Screen layout 1100
Note: When the APC account has a number that is at most 5 characters long, the system automatically
assigns the account number as the key for the screen layout control. If the account number has more than 5
characters, the 5-character key for the screen layout control has to be entered manually. Field groups for
optional entries can be entered in the asset class.
Step 7 The system creates an asset class with the same name as each APC account. Here the following
parameters are added to the asset classes:
• Asset Class 11000 (comes auto)
• Specify type of the asset class
0 without AuC / LVA / CLVA
1 asset under construction
2 low value asset
3 collective low value assets
• Specify the default depreciation key and the default useful life for each
depreciation area. You can add to this information for more depreciation areas in a later step.

FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
 Note: The function for generating asset classes can be used more than once. The system uses the
following logic when this function is used again:
• First, the system checks whether the company code is already in production status. If it is, then the system
creates, based on the selected G/L accounts selected, only asset classes, account determinations and so on that
were not yet created. Any existing asset classes are not changed; nor are they deleted and created again.
• If the company code is not yet in production, the system checks whether assets already exist for the
existing asset classes. If not, the system deletes the existing asset classes and generates them again.
• If assets do exist, the system checks if there are also transactions for the assets. If there are no
transactions, the following options are available:
→ Delete all asset classes and their assets, and generate them again
→ Only add new asset classes
→ If transactions exist for the assets, then you can only add new asset classes
Specify Account Determination
Account determination determines the ‘reconciliation account’ in G/L ledger i.e. the G/L account to which a
transaction for asset will be posted and also its off-setting entry.
 Note: An asset class must have one Account determination. Normally it bears resemblance with
the G/L account it refers to.
 Note: However an Account determination can be used by several asset class, if it uses the same
chart of accounts and is posted to the same G/L account.

Specify transfer of APC values
In SAP asset values of one depr area can be used by other areas.
SAP has defined 01 i.e. Book Depreciation area as standard for other depreciation area (all real depr areas)
i.e. all other areas derive their Asset B/S values (APC values) from depr area 01.
Only exceptions are – derived depr areas and areas for revaluation & investment support.
 Note: Some other depr area can be made ‘base depr area’ in this IMG activity.
 Note: ‘Ref area’ for 01 i.e. Book Depreciation area is ‘00’ and is not open to be changed.
• Specify transfer of depreciation terms [similar to transfer of APC values]
Specify transfer of Depreciation terms
Similar to above, depreciation terms (i.e. depreciation keys, useful life, etc) of one depr area can also be

that of reference area in asset master record.
97 by Harnath
FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
 Note: ‘Ref depr area’ must be smaller that the ‘dependent depr area’.
 Note: ‘Ref area’ for 01 i.e. Book Depreciation area is ‘00’ and is not open to be changed.
Any change in reference depr area will not automatically be updated in dependent depr area unless
“identical” is kept ‘on’.
• Determine Depreciation areas in the Asset Class
o Select asset class & depreciation area
o Depreciation key
o Use – useful life
o Per - useful life periods [if useful life = 7, periods = 6]
o Index - index series for replacement values
o Layout - screen layout
Determine Depreciation Area in Asset Class
Generally, the assets in an asset class use the same depreciation terms (depreciation key, useful life).
Therefore, you do not have to maintain the depreciation terms in the asset master record. Instead, they can
be default values from the asset class.
SAP normally comes with standard settings for country specific requirements.
Note the settings:
Asset Class 11000 Plant & Machinery
Depr Area 01 Book Depreciation
Ch of Depr only off if this is ‘on’, new assets can’t be created in this class.
negative value off
LVA check 0 no maximum amount check
1 value based maximum amount check
2 quantity based maximum amount check
Minimum / Maximum life assets with min life below this level are not allowed in
this asset class
Life period (wherever used) no. of months in case of fractional life
Depreciation key DG30
Useful Life years over which assets under this class are to be
depreciated
 Note: ‘Useful Life’ is a mandatory field (irrespective of FSVs) except when depreciation
key is 0000. SAP needs it to calculate depreciation. However if some depreciation method is used
which is independent of the useful life, one can put very high value say, 100 years in this field.
• LVA check - 0 no max amount check
o 1 value based max amount check
o 2 check max amount with quantity
IMG > FA > Asset Accounting > Valuation > Amount specification (Company code / Depreciation area)

FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
amount
Specify amount for LVA: Maximum amount for LVA is defined for each depreciation area.
• Amount specifications [value based check]
o Specify max amount for LVA & asset class
o Specify rounding off of Net Book Value & Dep - net book value at year end
rounded off to whole
o Specify changeover amount – for changeover to the key defined in the dep key
o Specify memo value for Dep areas - a value exists even though the planned
expected useful life has already been exceeded
• Fiscal year
o FYV - specify other version on Dep area level. Reqd only in exceptional
situations
• Shortened Fiscal Years -Define reduction rules for shortened FY for ordinary & spl dep,
interest & revaluation, because in a shortened FY, it is generally necessary to reduce dep
in proportion to the reduction in the length of the fiscal year. [Maintain Dep Key – refer
DEP/Val Methods/Dep Key]
• Use of half months in the co code - mid month - date which specifies the middle of a
period i.e. 15 days
IMG > FA > Asset Accounting > Valuation > Fiscal Year
Use of half months in Company Code
Using this function, one can calculate depreciation in these company codes on the basis of half months or
half periods.
Half months can only be used with calendar fiscal year versions.
Define weighting of periods
This options can be used in case of seasonal industry, where assets are only used for part of an year and
hence depreciation needs to be accounted for in those active period only, for financial statements to reflect
true operational performance. Depreciation is still taken for whole year, only it is weighted in active months
only.
This option is mainly exercised for management analysis purposes and not for statutory compliance
purposes.
• Define weighting of periods
o Specify areas for individual period weighting - indicator can be set for
UNEQUAL depreciation, a requirement in seasonal industries.
o Weight periods in FY version - choose a FY
o Period - after which dep is calculated or incase of retirement, upto which dep is
calculated
o WT prop - weight proportion - normally for all periods dep is equal, but if a
value is entered for this period dep = relative wt / total weights

DEPRECIATION
• Ordinary Depreciation
o Determine dep areas - values should be –ve or 0
o Assign a/c’s - choose a/c allocation & a/c determination
o Define unit of prodn [UOP]
º STCK default UOP - total units are for the whole year.
º Period unit - units produced in a period – month. For more than 1 year,
define units for all the years. Based on the useful life, dep/yr is calculated
& then broken up in a year based on UOP.
IMG > FA > Asset Accounting > Depreciation > Ordinary Depreciation
Determine depreciation areas
Here depreciation areas are selected for ordinary depreciation. Also +ve or –ve sign is allowed for each
depreciation area. In normal procedure, ordinary depreciation is selected with “negative and zero values
allowed” (double click depr area).
Assign G/L Accounts
In this step, G/L accounts are defined for Chart of Accounts / Account determination (Asset Class) /
Depreciation area.
G/L a/c for Accumulated depreciation (B/S)
G/L a/c for Depreciation expense (P&L a/c)
Define Unit of Production Depreciation
If useful life of any asset is more dependent on the no. of units produced, depreciation can be calculated
based on no. of units produced in each FY, if total no. units is defined in this activity for the asset concerned.

º Define declining bal methods
• Declining factor – dep % resulting from useful life etc X factor for

ASSET DATA TRANSFER
Legacy Data Transfer Using Microsoft XL
Along with the Data Transfer Workbench, the SAP R/3 Asset Accounting component also offers the option of
transferring legacy asset data using Microsoft Excel. This method is especially suited for transferring small 
datasets, such as a few hundred fixed assets. The amount of data you can transfer using this method is limited by the
maximum number of rows in your Excel version.
PREREQUISITES
The first step is to load or manually enter the legacy asset data and values from your legacy system into
an Excel sheet. The data transferred to the R/3 System has to be in a specified form. In order to ensure
that the data transfer is carried out correctly, you should adhere to the following guidelines when creating
the Excel sheet:
SAP recommends that you set the Standard Excel format for the entire document before
you enter any data. Dates, however, can also be entered using the Custom Excel format.
The Excel spreadsheet consists of two parts (see the example below).
• In the header (blue in the example), you specify the type of data you want to transfer for your assets, for
example, the company code, description, and so on.
• In the asset section you enter the individual assets and their values.
The Excel worksheet has to contain cells for the legacy asset number, company code, asset class and
capitalization date, and values have to be supplied in these cells for each asset. The same applies for any
required entry fields that are defined in the asset class in the R/3 System.
You might want to prepare for the data transfer, although the organizational structures of
your enterprise have not yet been specified (for example, the description of a company
code is not decided). In this case, you enter variables for the missing information, for
example, company code XXXX. Before carrying out the data transfer, you can then use
the Replace function in Excel to replace the variable with the correct value.
HEADER
In the header, you first specify the field descriptions to be transferred. The first 5 rows in the Excel
worksheet are reserved for this header information. You are not allowed to use them for asset master
data or asset values.
The fields are organized in record types. Enter these record types in the first column of the worksheet.
The next columns should contain the field descriptions assigned to these record types. SAP recommends
the following structure:
107 by Harnath
FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
USE OF RECORD TYPES
Record
type
Used for… Is assigned to tab page during field
assignment (see below) …
0 Identifier (legacy asset number); record type 0 is
reserved solely for the number of the asset from the
legacy system, and is not allowed to be used for any
other purpose. The system needs the identifier if
there are errors, in order to assign them to the correct
assets.
Header data
1 Asset master data, general data and inventory data Header data
2 Posting information, time-dependent data Time-dependent data to Leasing
3 Depreciation areas, cumulative values, posted values Depreciation areas, cumulative values,
posted values
4 Transactions Transactions

If you do not need certain record types (for example, record type 4), then you can omit
them when creating your Excel worksheet.
ASSET SECTION
Enter the asset values below the header data. You have to enter the asset data in the Excel worksheet so
that it corresponds to the structure of the field descriptions in the header.
For example, you specify in the header for record type 1 that the company code is in
column B and the asset class is in column C.
The system then recognizes the field contents of all fields of record type 1 in column B as
company codes and in column C as asset classes.
Therefore, you have to make sure that for each asset, which is in a row specified as
record type 1, that its company code is always in column B and its asset class in column
C.
Fields that have leading zeroes in the R/3 System (for example, company code 0001), have to have
leading zeroes in this format. Always enter the asset class with 8 places and leading zeroes (for example,
00001000).

FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
EXAMPLE OF STRUCTURE OF XL WKS
In record type 3 (depreciation area data) always supply the depreciation area name (such as 01) first.
In record type 4 (transactions) you have to enter the sequential number and the depreciation area in the
first two fields. The sequential number is used to keep different transactions separate from one another.

Features
Field Assignment between XL & R/3 [ Mapping ]
In the R/3 System, you assign the field descriptions of the Excel worksheet cells to fields in R/3 (for
example, CoCd to company code). In the initial screen of the transaction, you choose whether you want
to use an already existing field assignment or if you want to create a new one. To choose an existing field
assignment, select the one you want and choose Start with field assignment. To create a new field
assignment, choose Create field assignment.
Some Excel versions issue a message at this point in a dialog box. The message states
that there is a large amount of data in stored temporarily, and asks if you want this data
to be available to other applications. Choose No.
You make the field assignment by selecting a row in the Fields of file table and selecting its corresponding
field on the Fields of asset master record tab pages, and then choosing the Assign pushbutton. The
system does not check if the assignment is logical. However, you can assign each field to exactly one
other field. Certain assignments are mandatory. You have to assign the old asset number (from the
legacy system). In addition, you have to assign the asset class, company code, capitalization date, and
any required entry fields (see above) in the R/3 System.
The system lists only those field descriptions that are defined in the header section of the Excel sheet.
These are sorted according to their record type (0, 1, 2 and so on). The asset master data fields that can
be completed in the R/3 System are split up on various tab pages. See the Use of Record Types table
(above) for the valid assignments.
Before the data transfer, the system displays a dialog box, in which it asks if the field assignment should
be saved. However, you can also still save the field assignment after the data transfer (Saved
assignments pushbutton). In this way, you can carry out a number of data transfers that always follow the
same pattern. You thereby only have to carry out the mapping and conversion once. It is saved in your
saved field assignment and can be used again in the future.
In the Excel sheet in the above graphic, the assignment of header in f ormation to table
field in the R/3 System would look like this:
Comp Code – company code
Asset Class – asset class
Tr Type – transaction type, and so on
SETTING THE DATE FORMAT
110 by Harnath
FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
Choose Settings Date format to specify whether the date uses American format (MM/DD/YY or
MM/DD/YYYY), ISO format (YYYY-MM-DD), European format (DD.MM.YY or DD.MM.YYYY), or SAP
format (YYYYMMDD). Dates in your Excel sheet have to have the same format.
TRANSFER OF FIXED ASSETS
During a test run (choose Test run ) the system lists any errors that occur, without actually starting the
legacy data transfer.
During a production run (choose Assets ) the system creates new assets using the values from the
Excel worksheet. It supplies values to their fields based on the assignments you made. To display master
records of assets that were created successfully, choose Details of return message .
Any incomplete or incorrect data that could not be used to create assets can be displayed in a separate
Excel worksheet (choose Export errors to file).
ACTIVITIES
Start the legacy data transfer program in Customizing for Asset Accounting. Choose Asset Data Transfer

• You must have the legacy data in an Xl file.
• The cols after that have to be matched to SAP like CO Code etc.
• When all the SAP fields are matched you can upload.
• Legacy data cols will have to be changed to be recognizable by SAP.
• Alternatively you can use BDC.

Therefore, do not copy CO area before creating GL a/c’s [first create thru

ASAP is a PC based solution recommended by SAP for implementation planning and for use in
an R/3 System implementation. ASAP optimizes time, quality & efficient use of resources.
ASAP integrates 3 components
1. The ASAP Roadmap
2. Tools
3. R/3 Service & Training
The ASAP Roadmap – which delivers a process oriented, clear & concise project plan to provide
step by step direction throughout the R/3 implementation, which consists of 5 phases.
1. Project Preparation / Scoping
2. Business Blueprint
3. Realization
4. Final Preparation
5. Go Live & Support
Tools :
Implementation Assistant
Question & Answer Database [QADB]

R/3 System
An R/3 transaction is a sequence of dialog steps that are consistent in a business context and that
belong together logically. When an R/3 transaction is executed, all individual dialog steps are
performed and the data entered in the transaction is updated in the database. From the viewpoint
of the database, this is a conversion from one consistent state to the next.
After a user accesses a transaction, the R/3 system starts a query from the application level to the
database level. This query is performed in SQL [structured query language] the language
compatible with most database systems. The scope of SQL enables the full functionality of the
database system, including all vendor-specific enhancements to be used.

Project Preparation
The primary focus of Phase I is getting the project started, identifying team members &
developing a high level plan. This process continues with customer interaction through a QADB,
thereby enabling knowledge of the customers process and facilitating of the AS IS Document
which is the DELIVERABLE of this phase. Customer sign off on the AS IS is a must.
The project preparation is instrumental in generating the AS IS document. This document
captures all the proceses “AS IS”. This becomes the deliverable and input for the next stage. The
project plan, resources etc are done through a project estimator. In the course of capturing the
proceses, a sandbox client can be set up to demonstrate to the customer. As to how SAP will
function [ look & feel ].
Business Blueprint
Understand the business goals of the company & to determine the business requirements needed
to support these goals.
The Business Blueprint captures all the processes “TO BE”, which has taken the information
from the “AS IS” document, & after GAP ANALYSIS, SANDBOX demo etc, USER SIGNOFF,
generated a “TO BE” deliverable, which forms the basis for the implementation.
Realization
To implement al the business & process requirements based on the Business Blueprint.
Customize step by step in two work packages, Baseline & Final Configuration.
The implementation takes off in a Development Box, which is an independent and insulated
server. All configuration done on any earlier SANDBOXES, are reconfigured on the DEV Box.
This configuration is transported to the Test Integration/Implementation Server, where the data is
loaded & testing & integration point tests take place. Data transports are always from the Dev
Box to the Test Server, & not vice versa. If any modifications are done on the Test Server in the
course of testing, they have to be redone on the Dev Server.
Final Preparation
Complete testing, end user training, system management and cutover activities. Critical Open
issues are resolved. Upon the successful completion of this phase, business in the R/3 Production
Server can be run. After all testing is done, compile documentation, user training and signoff.
Go Live & Support
Transition from a project oriented, pre-productive environment to a successful & live productive
operation.
Go Live & Early Watch : The Go Live check is for just before you cut over to live operation. It
tests whether the system is suitably configured for the requirements. In early watch sessions,
SAP spots potential performance problems early & suggests suitable corrective measures.
Remote Consulting : In remote consulting sessions, SAP consultants log into your server at
convienent times, trying to analyse & solve problems in your system from their desk.

Img – Implementation Guide
The IMG acts as a checklist of the customizing activities that an enterprise should complete for a
SAP system implementation project. The IMG is hierarchally structured.
From a project IMG, you can work on customizing transactions, project documentation, cross
project documentation and project management information.
Industry specific customizing is the name given to the installation of the default customizing
parameters in the IMG that relate to a certain industry. You can transfer industry specific master
data structures to the system by using a CATT which is also integrated in the R/3 system.
CATT’s are provided for industry specific businesscases defined by SAP. Industry business
solutions are integrated in the Business Framework as Business Components. The
implementations of the system can also be ready to run R/3 [RRR] system solution. The main
feature of this system is the complete delivery of hardware and software allowing you to rapidly
install the R/3 system.
ABAP Dictionary
The ABAP dictionary contains the field definitions that are defined in the standard SAP system.
While online, the system uses the definition of the table fields in the ABAP dictionary to check
the format of the users field entries. The check on R/3 application level guarantees data
consistency before the data is transferred to the database.
Business Object Repository
Where SAP Business Objects are maintained. A SAP Bus Object is the representation of a
central bus object in the real world like an employee, sales order etc. Methods [application
programs] are used to modify the attributes [characteristics that specify a bus object] e.g change
employee address, promote employee. A bus object in a BOR can have many methods from
which one or several are implemented as BAPIs.
Business Application Programming Interface
A BAPI is basically an entry gate to the R/3 system, which R/3 offers access to business data &
processes. A BAPI is assigned to one & only one bus object. Business components interact in the
Business Framework Architecture via open BAPIs.
Architecture :
SAP Bus Component FI, HR etc
Bus Objects Sales Orders
BAPIs Create Sales Order
Client Components Sales component on an external w/station

Report Painter
Report Painter allows you to create reports using data from SAP application components, which you can
adapt to meet your individual requirements.
Many of your reporting requirements can already be met by using the standard reports provided by
various SAP application components. If these SAP standard reports do not meet your reporting needs,
Report Painter enables you to define your specific reports quickly and easily.
Report Painter fulfills a function similar to Report Writer, but is easier to use. Most of the functions found
in Report Writer have been built into Report Painter; however, you do not need to be familiar with all
Report Writer concepts (such as Sets) in order to use Report Painter.
When executing a Report Painter report, it is displayed by the system in Report Writer format. You thus
have access to the same functions as for Report Writer reports defined in the same way, and can
combine Report Painter and Report Writer reports together in a report group.
Report Painter uses a graphical report structure, which forms the basis for your report definition and
displays the rows and columns as they appear in the final report output.
To facilitate report definition, you can use many of the standard reporting objects provided by SAP (such
as libraries, row/column models, and standard layouts) in your own specific reports. When you define a
Report Painter report you can use groups (sets). You can also enter characteristic values directly.
Advantages of Report Painter include:
• Flexible and simple report definition
• Report definition without using sets
• Direct layout control: The rows and columns are displayed in the report definition as they appear in the
final report output, making test runs unnecessary.
For comprehensive information on the Report Painter, see the SAP Library, under Financial Accounting → Special
Purpose Ledger → InfoSystem / Report Painter Reports

WorkFlows : PLEASE DO NOT EXPERIMENT
• Configuring a WorkFlow
o Create a Simple Oraganisational Unit
In this section you will create a simple organizational structure. You will notice that this is not just a technical
representation but also reflects the way a company handles organizational management.
• There are direct relationships between the different objects.
For example: A position is assigned to an organizational unit. The position is described by a job and a user
is assigned to this position.
• The positions and the relationships also have validity dates.
For example: A position can be created in advance so that it is valid from the beginning of the next month.
A user can be assigned to this position for the next sixth months leaving it vacant after this date. The
vacancy can be filled at any time by the system administrator.
As you can see, this makes it very easy for the workflow administrator to keep the organizational structure up-to-
date, and to maintain the assignments and reorganizations in advance so that they automatically come into effect at
midnight on the appropriate day.
Tip: Never delete positions, users, or any other organizational unit. Use the validity date to delimit the existence of
the organizational object. This is easy and ensures that the reporting and auditing work consistently.
This tutorial shows you how to create an organizational unit from scratch.
• First Step in Creating the Organizational Plan
• Specify Validity of the Main Organizational Unit
• Description of the Main Screen
• Create a Hierarchy of Organizational
Units
• Create an Organizational Sub-Unit
• Create Positions
• Create Positions (Part 2)
• Describe the Position
• Search for a
User
• Select a User
• Assign the User to the Position
• Determine the Validity
• The Organizational Unit Is
Complete
• First Step in Creating the Organizational Plan
o SAP/Tools/BusWF/Dev/DefTools/OrgMgmt/OrgPlan/Create [ PPOCW ]
• Specify Validity of the Main Organizational Unit
156 by Harnath
FICONOTES : A guide to Configuring Financial Accounting and Controlling
All organizational objects have a validity period. This allows you to set up an organizational object in advance. It
also allows you to specify a termination date. Later, if there is an organizational reshuffle this termination date can
be brought forward.
The organizational unit is only valid for this duration. Later, if it is assigned to a workflow task no agents will be
found outside this validity period.
The default is to start immediately and terminate in the year 9999 - in other words
forever.
• Description of the Main Screen
The maintenance screen is divided into four frames.
1 Maintenance frame. This frame displays the main object and its relationships - in this case the new
organizational unit that you are creating. TOP RIGHT
2 Detail frame. This displays the detailed information about the organizational object selected in the
maintenance frame. You can switch between different types of detailed information (views) using the tab
strips. MIDDLE RIGHT create as Org Unit BOOKDEPT & Desc as ORG UNIT FOR BOOK
3 Search criteria frame. This frame is independent of the maintenance frame and the detail frame. It allows you
to search for new objects which can be displayed or linked to other objects. LEFT TOP
4 Search results frame. The results of the search based on the search criteria frame is displayed here. An object
can either be dragged and dropped into the maintenance frame in a relationship (such as a user to be assigned to an
organizational unit) or displayed in the maintenance frame by double-clicking on it. LEFT BOTTOM
The blue arrow buttons ( ) are used to navigate back and forth between the views that you have displayed.
For example, while you are displaying the organizational unit you may search for another organizational unit to
compare them. Double-clicking on the new unit will display it in the maintenance frame. Choosing the blue "back"
arrow will return to view the original unit. Do not confuse this with the undo button ( ), which undoes changes
made up to the last save.
The frames can be resized by stretching their frame outline and the detail frame can be eliminated (or recovered) by
clicking on its title bar.
Do not forget to regularly save the data (
).
• Create a Hierarchy of Organizational Units
Top Left NEW ORGN UNIT becomes ORGN UNIT FOR BOOK after Save of Right Middle i.e.
detail frame.
• Create an Organizational Sub-Unit
The list of object types that can be created depends on the original object selected.
An organizational object can be
assigned:
• Subsidiary organizational objects
• Positions
• Tasks (single step tasks used in a workflow)
• Workflows (meaning that anyone assigned to the original organization has the authorization to start this
workflow). Normally you create a workflow from the Workflow Builder rather than this screen.
Select orgn unit by double clicking on it.
• Create Positions

Type in a description of the new orgn unit [ e.g. Southern Division ], and create an addl orgn unit.

Report Painter
Report Painter allows you to create reports using data from SAP application components, which you can adapt to meet your individual requirements. Many of your reporting requirements can already be met by using the standard reports provided by various SAP application components. If these SAP standard reports do not meet your reporting needs, Report Painter enables you to define your specific reports quickly and easily. Report Painter fulfills a function similar to Report Writer, but is easier to use. Most of the functions found in Report Writer have been built into Report Painter; however, you do not need to be familiar with all Report Writer concepts (such as Sets) in order to use Report Painter. When executing a Report Painter report, it is displayed by the system in Report Writer format. You thus have access to the same functions as for Report Writer reports defined in the same way, and can combine Report Painter and Report Writer reports together in a report group. Report Painter uses a graphical report structure, which forms the basis for your report definition and displays the rows and columns as they appear in the final report output. To facilitate report definition, you can use many of the standard reporting objects provided by SAP (such as libraries, row/column models, and standard layouts) in your own specific reports. When you define a Report Painter report you can use groups (sets). You can also enter characteristic values directly. Advantages of Report Painter include: • • • Flexible and simple report definition Report definition without using sets Direct layout control: The rows and columns are displayed in the report definition as they appear in the final report output, making test runs unnecessary.

For comprehensive information on the Report Painter, see the SAP Library, under Financial Accounting → Special Purpose Ledger → InfoSystem / Report Painter Reports
